- This course is intended for workers who are renewing an expired or soon to be expired 16-Hour Rigging Worker or 8-Hour Rigging Worker Refresher ID card to continue to perform rigging or signaling work in conjunction with the hoisting or lowering of articles on the outside of a building with hoisting equipment.
8-Hour Rigging Worker Refresher
This course is a requirement for an individual – who is not employed by a licensed Rigger – to continue to perform rigging or signaling work in conjunction with the hoisting or lowering of articles on the outside of a building with hoisting equipment. In lieu of completing this course, an individual may instead possess a Department-approved national rigging certification. (NCCCO Rigger Level 1)
The 8-Hour Rigging Worker Refresher course is a specialized training program designed for individuals who have previously completed the 16-Hour Rigging Worker course and need to renew their certification or refresh their knowledge. This refresher course provides a condensed review of important concepts and updates related to rigging operations in the construction industry.
During the course, participants will revisit key topics covered in the initial 16-hour training, including rigging safety regulations, load calculations, rigging techniques, equipment inspection and maintenance, signaling, and communication, rigging hardware, proper lifting methods, and safe work practices. The course will also address any recent updates or changes in regulations or best practices related to rigging operations.
The training will focus on reinforcing knowledge, refreshing skills, and addressing any specific challenges or areas of concern related to rigging tasks. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss real-world scenarios, share experiences, and engage in interactive activities to enhance their understanding and proficiency.
Language: English and Spanish.
